Following are general descriptions of the major components used in both the standard and optional equipment audio systems. Refer to 8W-47 Audio System in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams for complete circuit descriptions and diagrams.

MEMORY SYSTEM
An electronic memory system is an available option on this model. The memory system is able to store and recall the drivers power seat positions (including power lumbar and recliner positions), both outside power mirror positions, and ten radio station presets (including last station tuned) for two drivers. The memory system will automatically return to all of these settings when the corresponding button (Driver 1 or 2) of the memory switch on the drivers front door trim panel is depressed, or when the doors are unlocked using the corresponding (Driver 1 or 2) Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter. The Driver Door Module (DDM) receives hardwired input from the memory set/select switch on the drivers front door trim panel. The DDM also receives messages on the Chrysler Collision Detection (CCD) data bus network from the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) receiver in the Passenger Door Module (PDM) for the memory select function. The DDM processes these inputs and sends messages to the radio on the CCD data bus for memory recall.

The CCD data bus network allows the sharing of sensor information. This helps to reduce wiring harness complexity, reduce internal controller hardware, and reduce component sensor current loads. At the same time, this system provides increased reliability, enhanced diagnostics, and allows the addition of many new feature capabilities. This group covers only the diagnostic procedures for the conventional audio system components. For additional information on the features and functions of the memory system, refer to the vehicle owners manual. For diagnosis of the memory system, use of a DRB scan tool and the proper Body Diagnostic Procedures Manual are recommended.

DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION RADIOS


Radio options include an AM/FM/cassette (RAS sales code), an AM/FM/cassette/5-band graphic equalizer (RBN sales code), an AM/FM/CD/3-band graphic equalizer (RBR sales code), or an AM/FM/CD/cassette/3-band graphic equalizer (RAZ sales code). All receivers are stereo Electronically Tuned Radios (ETR) and include a clock function. All radio receivers, except the RAS model, communicate on the Chrysler Collision Detection (CCD) data bus network through a separate two-way connector. The CCD data bus network allows the sharing of sensor information. This helps to reduce wiring harness complexity, internal controller hardware, and component sensor current loads. At the same time,

DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION (Continued)


this system provides increased reliability, enhanced diagnostics, and allows the addition of many new feature capabilities. Models equipped with the optional Vehicle Information Center (VIC) have a clock synchronization feature. The VIC clocks minutes display is automatically updated to the setting shown on the radio clock through a message sent on the CCD data bus by the radio. This synchronization does not apply to the hours display of the radio or VIC clocks. Refer to Group 8E - Instrument Panel Systems for more information on the VIC module. Several audio system functions can be diagnosed using a DRB scan tool. Refer to the proper Body Diagnostic Procedures Manual for more information on DRB testing of the audio systems. For more information on radio features, setting procedures, and control functions refer to the owners manual in the vehicle glove box. enhanced diagnostics, and allows the addition of many new feature capabilities. One of the functions and features that the BCM supports and controls, is the remote radio switches. The BCM receives hard wired resistor multiplexed inputs from the remote radio switches. The programming in the BCM allows it to process those inputs and send the proper CCD data bus messages to control the radio volume, seek, and preset station advance functions. The BCM is mounted under the left end of the instrument panel, behind the instrument panel support armature and below the left switch pod. Refer to Group 8E - Instrument Panel Systems for removal and installation procedures. For diagnosis of the BCM or the CCD data bus, refer to the proper Body Diagnostic Procedures manual. The BCM can only be serviced by an authorized repair station. Refer to the Warranty Policies and Procedures Manual for a listing of authorized repair stations.

REMOTE RADIO SWITCHES


A remote radio control switch option is available on Grand Cherokee Limited models with the AM/FM/ cassette/5-band graphic equalizer (RBN sales code), or the AM/FM/CD/cassette/3-band graphic equalizer (RAZ sales code) radio receivers. Two rocker-type switches are mounted on the back (instrument panel side) of the steering wheel spokes. The switch on the left spoke is the seek switch and has seek up, seek down, and preset station advance functions. The switch on the right spoke is the volume control switch and has volume up, and volume down functions. These switches are resistor multiplexed units that are hard-wired to the Body Control Module (BCM) through the clockspring. The BCM sends the proper messages on the Chrysler Collision Detection (CCD) data bus network to the radio receiver. For diagnosis of the BCM or the CCD bus, refer to the proper Body Diagnostic Procedures Manual. For more information on the operation of the remote radio switch controls, refer to the owners manual in the vehicle glove box.

IGNITION-OFF DRAW FUSE


All vehicles are equipped with an Ignition-Off Draw (IOD) fuse that is removed when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. This fuse feeds various accessories that require current when the ignition switch is in the Off position, including the clock and radio station preset memory functions. The fuse is removed to prevent battery discharge during vehicle storage. When removing or installing the IOD fuse, it is important that the ignition switch be in the Off position. Failure to place the ignition switch in the Off position can cause the radio display to become scrambled when the IOD fuse is removed and replaced. Removing and replacing the IOD fuse again, with the ignition switch in the Off position, will correct the scrambled display condition. The IOD fuse should be checked if the radio station preset memory or clock functions are erratic or inoperative. The IOD fuse is located in the junction block.

SPEAKERS BODY CONTROL MODULE


A Body Control Module (BCM) is used on this model to control and integrate many of the vehicles electrical functions and features. The BCM contains a central processing unit and interfaces with other modules in the vehicle on the Chrysler Collision Detection (CCD) data bus network. The CCD data bus network allows the sharing of sensor information. This helps to reduce wiring harness complexity, reduce internal controller hardware, and reduce component sensor current loads. At the same time, this system provides increased reliability, The standard equipment speaker system includes four full-range speakers, one mounted in each of the four doors. This speaker system is only offered on the standard AM/FM/cassette radio receiver (RAS sales code). All other radio receivers include the Infinity Gold premium speaker and amplifier package upgrade. This package uses an Infinity 120 watt amplifier mounted on the floor beneath the rear seat cushion on the drivers side of the vehicle. The package includes an Infinity coaxial full-range speaker mounted in each rear door, an Infinity mid-range speaker mounted in each front door, and an Infinity

ANTENNA
All models use a fixed-length stainless steel rodtype antenna mast, installed at the right front fender of the vehicle. The antenna mast is connected to the center wire of the coaxial antenna cable and is not grounded to any part of the vehicle. To eliminate static, the antenna base must have a good ground. The coaxial antenna cable shield (the outer wire mesh of the cable) is grounded to the antenna base and the radio chassis. The antenna cable has an additional disconnect, located near the right end of the instrument panel and the right cowl side panel, to allow instrument panel installation and removal without removing the radio. The factory-installed ETRs automatically compensate for radio antenna trim. Therefore, no antenna trimmer adjustment is required or possible when replacing the receiver or the antenna.

RADIO NOISE SUPPRESSION


Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and ElectroMagnetic Interference (EMI) noise suppression is accomplished primarily through circuitry internal to the radio receivers. These internal suppression devices are only serviced as part of the radio receiver. External suppression devices that are serviced, and should be checked in the case of RFI or EMI noise complaints, include the following: Radio antenna base ground Radio chassis ground wire, strap, or bracket Engine-to-body ground strap (if equipped) Cab-to-bed ground strap (if equipped) Heater core ground strap (if equipped) Resistor-type spark plugs Radio suppression-type secondary ignition wiring. In addition, if the source of RFI or EMI noise is identified as a component on the vehicle (i.e., generator, blower motor, etc.), the ground path for that component should be checked. If excessive resistance

is found in that circuit, repair that circuit as required before considering any component replacement. If the source of the noise is identified as two-way mobile radio or telephone equipment, check the following: Power connections should be made directly to the battery, and fused as closely to the battery as possible. The antenna should be mounted on the roof or toward the rear of the vehicle. Remember that magnetic antenna mounts on the roof panel can adversely affect the operation of an overhead console compass, if the vehicle is so equipped. The antenna cable should be fully shielded coaxial cable, should be as short as is practical, and should be routed away from the vehicle wiring whenever possible. The antenna and cable must be carefully matched to ensure a low Standing Wave Ratio (SWR). Fleet vehicles are available with an extra-cost RFIsuppressed Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This unit reduces interference generated by the PCM on some radio frequencies used in two-way radio communications. However, this unit will not resolve complaints of RFI in the commercial AM or FM radio frequency ranges.
